The Awakening district, also known as the Amos district, is in the Slumbering Hills

(Twps 39 and 40 N., R’s. 35 and 36 E.) between Silver State Valley and Desert Valley.

Placer gold was recovered from stream gravels along Teepee Creek in the Slumbering

Hills in 1914. The Creek is not shown on the maps of the area but is probably on the

east side of the hills that were the locale of prospecting activity at that time.
